ChannelPro-SMB Begins 2017 Four-City Tour of Events for IT Solution Providers

Attendees of the ChannelPro SMB Forum will learn to fuel their companies’ growth in today’s challenging marketplace and profit from the latest in IT solutions for small and midsize businesses.

ChannelPro-SMB, the premier source of business and technology insights for IT integrators and managed service providers serving the small and midsize business market, will hold four live events in 2017: March 2 in Atlanta; May 2 in Chicago; September 13 in Long Beach, Calif.; and November 2 in the NY Metro area.

Created to help attendees enter the fast lane to success, the events provide expert security, technology trends, business valuation, and managed services advice needed to boost their bottom lines.

The full-day, live events for channel resellers, integrators, consultants, and managed service providers offer interactive, in-depth conversations with some of the industry’s top channel pros who have pioneered profitable businesses from managed services and the cloud, as well as a cavalcade of industry experts. A showcase of SMB vendor solutions provides additional learning opportunities and enables channel pros to get one-on-one advice on employing new technologies and services to better serve their customers and their own businesses.

“ChannelPro SMB Forum events put attendees in the middle of the action, exchanging insights with each other, our speakers, and leading vendors as they get answers to the questions they care about most,” says Cecilia Galvin, executive editor of ChannelPro-SMB and an event host. “We’re proud to say that our audiences tell us year after year that the content and format of our events are both outstanding.”


Vendor support for the 2017 events is already strong: Pre-day and Gold sponsor SolarWinds MSP is on board, as are additional Gold sponsors Clover Imaging Group, Cytracom, Data Deposit Box, Datto Inc., Eaton, Ingram Micro, The 20, SYNNEX Corp. and Webroot Inc.
